“A world full of people who want to know what you will be, what is your skill and what is your purpose. In the north, if a man had come and said "What will you be? What will you do?" I would have laughed at this kind of person that lives all the time in the future.”
Daniel Mason, A Far Country

“The conversations rests uneasily; one doesn't expect good-byes to be burdened by such trivialities. This is not how it is in the books, he thinks, or in the theater, and he feels the need to speak of mission, of duty, of love. They reach home and close the door and he doesn't drop her hand. Where speech fails, touch compensates.”
Daniel Mason, The Piano Tuner

“White. Like a clean piece of paper, like uncarved ivory, all is white when the story begins.”
Daniel Mason, The Piano Tuner
